NZ-Oz in Women�s WC final today

By The Assam Tribune

BRIDGETOWN (BARBADOS), May 15 (PTI): It will be a battle of attrition when a confident Australia take on an equally impressive New Zealand in the Women�s Twenty20 World Cup final at the Kensington Oval here tomorrow.

Both the teams have maintained an unbeaten run en route to their summit stage and they would now put up no-hold-barred efforts to overcome the final barrier.

Australia have beaten India by seven wickets in the first semifinal while New Zealand comprehensively defeated the West Indies by 56 runs in the other match of the final-four stage.

Sarah McGlashan has been the most impressive batter for New Zealand, scoring a punishing 55-ball 84 against the West Indies in semifinals, and she can change all the calculations again in the final with her attacking batting.

Opener Suzie Bates has also been among the runs for New Zealand and has notched up a half-century in their first round match. Captain Aimee Watkins is another batter who is capable of leading the batting department from the front and making her presence count.
